Prices for tickets to the much-anticipated Vietnam-Indonesia football match have been surging in Hanoi's black market in recent days.

The Vietnam Football Federation set official prices at between VND150,000 (US$6.50)-VND400,000 (US$17.40) per ticket.

Scalpers then hiked prices by up to four times, to as high as VND1.5 million (US$65). Football, better known as soccer in some parts of the world, is by far the most popular sport in Vietnam.

Vietnam’s national football team lost 1-2 to host Indonesia in the first leg in Bogor, Indonesia last weekend.

In the other semifinal, Thailand beat host Myanmar by 2-0 in the first leg. The two teams will play again in Bangkok on December 8.
